We are flying into Venice and will be staying at the hotel Venezia Mestre (2 per room) for four nights ( The hotel is situated in the heart of Venice Mestre, in an ideal location and is 15 minutes from their downtown area.

Our next stop will be Florence. We will be staying four nights at the hotel Orto Dei Medici (2 per room). The hotel has been newly refurbished and is nestled right in the vibrant center of Florence but off the bustling beaten path. Hotel Orto De’ Medici is just a stone thrown away from the Cathedral, The Academy of Fine Arts with Michelangelo’s David, the Uffizi with its incomparable art collection, and the finest Italian restaurants. Go to for more information and pictures.

Our last four nights will be spent in Rome. We will be staying at the Nizza hotel (2 per room). The Hotel Nizza is located in the historical centre of Rome next to Termini Station and all the connections. It is only a few steps from the major monuments like Colosseum, Imperial Forum, Spanish Steps, Piazza Navona, Trevi Fountain, Opera’s Theatre and much more. Go to for more information.
